12946297_153814231466446_1213602782_n.jpgFor this week's Hungry City review, Ligaya Mishan files on Mamak House in Flushing: "Pasembur is one of the more mystifying dishes I've eaten, a jumble of cucumber, shredded jicama, boiled potatoes, tofu, dried squid sambal, chunks of fried soft-shell crab and two kinds of shrimp fritters, one spongy and sweetened with coconut, the other salty and crunchy from a batter of rice flour. I found the sauce cloying but still marveled at its litany of ingredients: sweet potato, peanuts, yellow dal, dates and (the wild card) crumbled Maria Tea Time Biscuits." [NYT]
